Calculated at checkout

Product Description

Well here it is, the highly anticipated 1498 CAUTERIZER. We've taken the exceptional flavor of our original 1498, and recreated it with 100% fresh TRINIDAD SCORPION PEPPERS. Why woud we do that? MORE FIRE, MORE FLAVOR!! With all of the buzz surrounding the Guiness Book's NEW Hottest Pepper, we know many of you want to experience the full potential of the Trinidad Scorpion Pepper as used in a truly artisan creation. As with all of our products, flavor continues to be Job 1. With all of the strong feedback on the original 1498, the follow up just seemed obvious. Remove the Scotch Bonnet Blend, Up The Scorpion Content and BOOM! We've even upped the overall Pepper content just a bit, for that extra Blast!  Cauterizing Heat AND irreplicable flavor!

These sauce features 100% Fresh Trinidad Scorpion Peppers in a background of apricot, blueberry and carrot. The select blend of fruits and spices compliment and enhance the floral bouquet of the Scorpion Pepper creating a uniquely addictive and extraordinarily versatile hot sauce.

COOK'S ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE has recently named our Cauterizer the BEST TASTING HOTTEST HOT SAUCE!!! When it comes to an exceptionally high heat accompanied by extreme flavor, it just doesn't get any better!

Granted this sauce has a significantly higher heat than many products out there, but our Cauterizer is by no means an extreme sauce. It is all-natural and developed to be used as an everyday condiment and cooking ingredient for the hot sauce lover. That's the beauty of what we do, creating heat levels that the chilehead can enjoy AND use!

Searing Passion , Sensory Seduction.

Ingredients: Trinidad Scorpion Peppers, Cider Vinegar, Apricot Preserves, Water, Blueberries, Carrot, Honey, Onion, Soy Sauce, Sea Salt, Garlic, Ginger, White Pepper.

  1. HD 1498 cauterizer

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Feb 2014

    This is the first product I ordered from Heartbreaking Dawns. I was impressed. The sauce has great flavor. It is jot but not overpowering. There is a nice blend of heat and sweetness. Would recommend and will check out more of their products.

  2. Holly Hot Sauce!

    Posted by Alex on 6th Jan 2014

    If you like heat this one is for you. I tried this one before my favorite 1482 version and it made me think I hadn't put anything on. The heat is there from the beginning and keeps building. But it is more then just heat, as with anything else I have tried from Heartbreaking Dawns the flavor is just outstanding. It is hard to believe there is flavor on something with this amount of heat as most others cant seem to make that happen but these guys have figured it out.

  3. Best Heat With Best Flavor

    Posted by Richard T. on 10th Dec 2013

    This sauce has the best flavor of any sauce that wants to get your attention. I have tried many from the stupidly hot, to the wanna be hot. The Cauterizer burns them all!

  4. Best sauce I've had!!!

    Posted by Vinny Leasure on 26th Nov 2013

    This sauce was the best I've had. In terms of heat it's great. But what really made it for me was that it had GREAT flavor unlike most hot sauces.

  5. Heat and Taste

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Jul 2013

    A sauce that packs a serious punch but tastes really good too.

  6. Plenty of heat, plenty of flavor

    Posted by J. Cordeiro on 2nd Jul 2013

    I think this stuff is great. I saw it tested on Cooks Illustrated and had to try it. I was not disappointed. It has plenty of heat from the scorpion peppers paired off with the sweetness of the blueberries and apricots. PERFECT COMBINATION! Use Responsibly!!

  7. Blueberries!

    Posted by MFH on 1st Jul 2013

    Delicious heat with a surprising blueberry note. Extremely flavorful. The heat hits me late with a bit of scalp sweat, not harsh in the mouth.

  8. Flavorful Burn

    Posted by Chuck on 7th Jun 2013

    I love how this sauce has a perfect balance of fruit and spices. Unlike anything else. The heat isn't to bad if your used to the super hots. If your not its a flavorful burn. I like the fact that the sauces are naturally hot without extract.

  9. HOT

    Posted by Samantha on 18th May 2013

    The best HOT hot sauce I've ever had! So much flavor and so much heat!

  10. Flavorishly Hot!

    Posted by Thomsas on 28th Feb 2013

    The perfect amount of heat to compliment the flavor.

  11. Great flavor and right amount of heat

    Posted by Steve S. on 3rd Dec 2012

    This sauce delivers some good heat and the fruity/sweet flavor adds to many foods. Glad i ordered 2, because the first one is going fast.

  12. Great tasting sauce

    Posted by Gary Stramandino on 20th Nov 2012

    This sauce Is not only hot it is one of the best tasting hot sauce I have had in a while. I am a customer for life

  13. My Go-to sauce

    Posted by Chanse G. on 3rd Nov 2012

    Hands down my favorite hot sauce ever. Despite the awesomely unique flavor that adds life to just about everything you can put this on, even non-chili head users of this sauce will immediately know this when they taste it and remember it. I loved the original 1498 but felt it lost it's kick within a week or so of my using it normally(once a day, for me), but the Cauterizer has managed to keep its heat consistently(as far as my taste buds go). It tastes ridiculously fresh, like the batch of it was made minutes before you dabble it over your dish. I like to give it breaks once and awhile to see if I can come back to it and see if it will taste just as new and fresh as the first time I opened the bottle, and it does! It not extract based, do again, a very fresh taste and no artificial tasting background. I won't get into the flavor, it's just too awesome and mouth-watering to write in words. I've used this on fried chicken, pork chops, even in pasta and steak. Also, try it with really salty dishes(Like skirt steak or the aforementioned porkchops); Something about it works well with the salt!

  14. I love this sauce.

    Posted by Tony L on 28th Oct 2012

    This is the best HOT sauce I have ever had. I will be getting more of this stuff.

  15. Makes everything taste better

    Posted by Dave on 1st Sep 2012

    Like many have said it has good heat but unlike many other sauces that have heat but taste like s*** this sauce makes everything taste better. I use it in pasta dishes, salsa of course, and anywhere else a bit of heat is needed. Complex taste that plays well with others. I also like Blairs and Melinda's and use these in combinations.

  16. My Favorite Hot Sauce

    Posted by Don on 29th Jun 2012

    As all are saying this is the best tasting hot sauce out there. It has good heat but the best part is how flavorful it is. I am through the entire bottle and looking for more. Compliments to the chefs.

  17. Thank you

    Posted by Unknown on 29th May 2012

    This is an wonderful sauce. A mixture of flavors that works with Pork, Beef, and Chicken. Extreamly spicy with a good flavor that makes you come back for more dispite the burning in your throat.

    Highly recomend

  18. Combines great flavor with heat

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Apr 2012

    Unlike other sauces that overwhelm you with heat, this sauce taste great and than sizzles. You want to come back for more.

  19. Perhaps the best hot sauce ever?

    Posted by Dean on 14th Apr 2012

    I'm new to the HBD brand, but I have yet to get a bad or even mediocre product from them. The Cauterizer hot sauce may be the best of them all.

    I made some burritos tonight with this sauce. Now not to brag but I know I make a good burrito, but the Cauterizer sauce only made my already excellent burrito ten times better.

    This sauce is sort of like a Louisiana style hot sauce, but the flavor is much more complex. There is a sweet, fruity flavor, and then at the same time there is the bitter vinegary flavor present at the same time which we all associate with a Louisiana style hot sauce.

    I found this sauce also to be just about perfect heatwise. It's fairly hot stuff; hot enough to satisy even the most hardcore chileheads, but at the same time it is not too hot where I can't run a line down my burrito either.

    I have tried a large number of hot sauces on the market today, and without a doubt this is easily one of my top 5 hot sauces of all time. Possibly top 3. Possibly even #1. And so far, I only had it on a burrito!

  20. HOT!

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Mar 2012

    I ordered this and it is intense but so delicious. I now use it on my hamburgers, fajita's and I even used it on my potato chips. The taste isn't just heat but a range of flavors. I love it.
